About Us

Learning with Parents is a charity with a vision for every child to be supported at home to fulfil their potential.

We are narrowing the attainment gap by supporting all parents and carers to engage in their children’s learning.

We do this by leading the Parental Engagement Forum - a group of organisations and researchers connecting to improve home learning across the sector. We also provide a ground-breaking parental engagement programme to primary schools, which aims to motivate and empower all families to have enjoyable learning experiences together.

In the last year, our charity has become a leading player in parental engagement, working with over 10,000 families and large organisations such as BBC, Department for Education and Oak National Academy.

About the Role

We are looking to recruit a Programme Director with a strong knowledge of how schools operate and of the education sector more widely to lead Learning with Parents school programmes, working with schools and other partners through our platform to promote parental engagement in their children’s learning.

The Programme Director leads the Schools Team in supporting our school partners and other partners to use our platform, ensuring that parents and teachers are supported to effectively use the technology and that school leaders are regularly updated on the progress of their classes. Part of the role involves leading the Learning with Parents’ sales process to bring on board new schools, allowing us to expand our reach to more disadvantaged families. The Programme Director is responsible for overseeing and improving, as necessary, all the processes and materials which underpin these programmes. This includes working closely with Learning with Parents’ Tech Team to feed into new developments, updates and any troubleshooting as required. 

The Programme Director also represents Learning with Parents and promotes parental engagement in sector networking and advocacy events. 

Finally, the Programme Director is a member of the Learning with Parents Senior Leadership Team, drawing on their experience and learning coming for our programme to feed into strategic discussions.

This is a hybrid role, with Mondays and Tuesdays in the Bristol office, the rest of the week remote.
